Other Horse Made Good Showing Against the Wonder. Items of Interest From tho World of Sport. ' Readville, Mass., Aug-. 23. The cele brated Cresceus was the magnet yes terday that drew almost 13.000 people to the Grand circuit meeting here. As a sort of recognition of the favors shown him in the way of applause when iie appeared upon the track, the chest nut horse proceeded, in the second heat of his winning race with Lord Derby and Charley Herr, to lower the track record for the mile by three-quarters of a second, and to break the world's record of final quarters by trotting that distance in :yi. By this latter per formance Cresceus lowered the record of thirty seconds for the final quarter which he made himself at Detroit about a, month ago when he strode the mile in 2:05. The. accomplishment of today was not the fastest quarter of all kinds, for both Peter the Oreat and Tommy Brit ton did the second quarter of a heat at Ijexinjrton, Ky several years ago in twenty-nine and a half seconds. Something of the interest was re moved from the free-for-all trot for a purse of J2,ft00, when Charley Herr, who "was driven by the owner, David Cahiil, (was distanced in the first heat, thus leaving the affair to Cresceus and Ird Derby, and there were some who saw the big race who believed that the i-reers gelding would have done some thing wonderful in the second and last 3ieat had he not broken coming home, for on the last half or the bend he was in front of the world's favorite. Ail of the horses received a cordial Erree ting at the scoring, and when they were off in the first heat Charley Herr in ad the pole, with Lord Derby beside Slim and Cresceus on the outside. At the quarter the pole belonged to Cresceus, for Charley Ilerr had pone up in the air. and at the half Cresceus was abput two lengths in front of the fieers horse. At the three-quarters Lord Derby was breathing into 3-Cetcham's back. The Cahill horse was fa,r back and out of the race. Coming Jiorne (Jeers got all he could, out of his gelding, but the mighty strides of Yesceus brought him in ahead by half a length. The time was In the second heat Cresceus - drew away from Lord Derby until, at the Jialf, he Wits two lengths to the good. At the three-quarters, however, the Kentucky horse had his nose at Cresceus' wheel and a little later he "whs actually ahead of Cresceus, but jit that moment Dord Derby broke and It was ail over. Ketcham drove home fiercely, nevertheless, creating the new last quarter record. The mile was in -:, the first quarter in SI1, the second in 1:04 U and the third in Sl4. Frazier. the Hubinger geldins, took the needed heat easily in the unfinished 2:27. class pace arid with it the race. The 2:14 class pace was an easy thing for Dan Patch, the favorite. The purse was JLO'V). the largest of the day. In the first heat Council Chimes clung close to the Chicago horse, but the lat ter won in 2:07ai. Council Chimes was finishing second, when he broke and was set back to fifth place for running. In the second heat Council Chimes !i t Armorel were contending for the v. :. when Dan Patch, who had been resting, walked by both of them. In the Jat heat Council Chimes was a close serond. Dolly Kid well, a Poston gelding, was the choice in the 2:12 class trot, with INeva Simmons running close In the -pool. The first heat belonged to the favorite, winning in the home stretch. Jt was a great surprise when. In the next heat. All Right left the bunch, passed Confessor and Dolly Ridwell -and won easily in 2:'i!"l4.

ARM HAS GIVEN OUT. jEfti-n X.eevers Pitching Daya Ar Probably Over. Pittsburg, Aug. Sam Leever, who, for several years, has been one of the mainstays of the Pittsburg club on the pitching rubber, believes that he has I itched his last game of ball. When 8us salary wing was put out by one of 'hristy Matthewson's, swiftest shoots, pome weeks ago, the injury was be lieved to be but trifling, but there has teen no improvement, and Deever is thoroughly discouraged. T think my pitching days are over," (paid he. "My arm is lame and weak, in; i if I had my way about it I would (to home and stay there. But the club iwants me to stay, and is willing to pay 3ne a salary, even if I don't pitch an other game this year." Secretary Pullman said that he in tended to have Eeever's arm examined by a number of physicians and "sur peons while the Pirates play in St. Jouis. "Mr. Dreyfuss has given orders aiot to allow Sam to go home, but to arry hira along and pay him a salary, even if he does not pitch another ball." paid Pullman. "He was a hard worker when he was right, and we feel it our duty to stick to him. The Xational League is treating its players fairly. $md that is more than they are doing in the American. Ed Scott, who pitch ed for the Reds last year and jumped to Cleveland, was released the other la.y, not because his arm was bad. but because a young fellow named Bracken, who gets just about one-third of the amount, paid Scott, has made good. Ieever, on the other band, wiil continue to draw ,100 per week whether he pitches or not." A CABINS FEAT. George II. Farrell Will Try to Cross Niagara Oorge on a Bicycle. Niagara Kails, X. Y..

Years ago a. man named Jenkins made a trip across the gorge in a two-wheel ed machine, but if Farrell makes the trip he talks of he will be the first to cross the gorge in that maimer. Mana ger Leary ep-cts to have the rope in position before the week closes, and Farrell may make the trip next Sunduy. FOUR ORIOLES FINED And Still McGraw's Team Fights the Umpire. Baltimore, Aug. 23. President Ban Johnson yesterday sent a caustic letter to Manager "Muggsy" McGraw of the Baltimore club concerning the treat ment of umpires in that city, and in cidentally imposed a few small fines tor offenses ot that kind. Pitcher McGinnity was barred from the coaching: lines for a period of ten days, lines were assessed as follows: McOraw, $3; McGinnity, $10; Keister, $": Bresnahan, $5. This action of John son will widen the breach between the acrappy Baltimore manager and him self, and ti would not be surprising should McGraw come back with some retort which would move Johnson to give out the real facts in the treachery story, only an inkling of which has reached the public as yet.

Fret-man, Criger and Young for next year.- Outfielder J.nes of the Chicago Ameri can league team has not made an error in over 2ti games. Last year at this time the Pirntes and the PhilDes were fighting for second place and. t!ie Pirates w..n out- "Lave'' Cress said yesterday: "I intend to play in the American league to the fln'.sh. even if it comes down to two clubs." Kx-erintor Fox, the new Cincinnati sec ond baseman, is doing splendid fielding, but is very much of a. disappointment at the. bat. Kitson is at present pitching the most sei.-menal bail In the league. His im provement over last seasons form is sur prising. Five games have been played in the Natl--na I 1- ague in whkh neither club made tin error. The Phillit s fimr-xl in three of thc' contests and Pittsiutrs in two. Pit tsbur-: h'l.s released T'tiHrv Imieider Carr ami wiil re-sign Eddie Doheny. the Vermont boy havmg twiriea two winning games since given his ten days' notice. Frank Dwjer says the wurlt of umpir ing in the league this season is child's play to what iu was some time .ago. Guess Frank didn't have a very long stay at the Polo grounds. Billy Hamilton is now doing bench duty for Boston. He has a halting average of .275 and leads Single anil Murphy, whom Selee is playing in preference to the New England boy. McGuire of Brooklyn has caught in more sanies this season than any other eau-hei- in the National league. Powers t.t the Atlileties leada tile American league; in tins re.s-.iect. Mike Powers is getting leg-weary. He has ni-Bii doing all the eate liing for Con nie Mack, and it's no picnic to be under the bat these days with the mask and bib on a 1 t he t iine. Just what. Klmer Flick needs that Jl.OMi adanee lor he is said to have received t rom Connie Mack is hard to surmise, but then Elmer is only human and couid buy a few new bats with it. George Staiiings. the Detroit manager, says that young Malonev, the Georgetown university boy, catching for Duffy, is the fastest catcher in the American league. And Stallings is about right at that. It is singular that Philadelphia does not play Jack Barry at second in place of Eiily Hailman. Barry is a good inneider and far faster with the stick and on the bases than Hailman. Emmet Heidrick. thanks to his rest of a couple ot weeks, now ieatis the leapue batters with an average of .35. Wiilie Keeler is second with ,32, accord ing to recent unofficial records. Among the Xational league players who have not yet been reported as having been approached by tlie opposition is C'hristv Matthewson, but then Matty broke faith with Connie Mack and is in bad repute. Jake Reekley probably will accompany the Philadelphia and Brooklyn teams to the Pacific coast in the fall. As Hugh Jennings will be unable to make the. trip because of his studies at Cornell Jake stan. Is a good show of coming in as first baseman of the Phillies. Tile Chicago American league team is anxious to get Billy Keeler and has made him several offers for the coming season. It is hardly likely that Keeler will ac cept any of them. He is not made of that kind of material that deserts a. friend. it is announced that seven of the Mil tvaukee players have signed contracts for next season. They are supposed to be Anderson, Moloney, Hailman. Hogriever, Fricl. Donohue and Hunting. The rest or ttie players are said to be ready to sign at any lime. NATIONAL LEAGUE. AT ST. LOUIS.

Prof. Popenoe Does Not Agree With Coburn. Thinks Hessian Fly Should Be Plowed Under. HIS LATEST BULLETIN. Discusses the Pest in All Its Phases. Ueneral Items of Interest From All Over Kansas. Experiment Station, Manhattan, Kas., Aug. 23, 19ol. During the season past the Hessian fly has caused some loss and much comment In parts of the Kansas wheat belt, and numerous letters of inquiry reaching the Kansas experiment sta tion have shown the need of wider pop ular information on this subject. An extended account of the insect appears in entomological bulletin No. 16, of the United States department of agricul ture, which should be consulted ay those interested in full details of life history. For practical purposes, how ever, the methods of preventive pro cedure are those of widest interest, and of these It appears that the most im portant are still the practices recom mended by earlier writers. Concerning the value of burning the stubble, and thus destroying the con tained pupae of the iiy. opinion is some what divided. it clone at once aftr-r harvesting, especially in fields where the header was tised, this method is certainly effective, if practiced by thj neighborhood in general. But by burn ing, not only are the pupae of the fly destroyed, but the contained parasites as well, whose aid is tfc most import ant factor, after all. in the subjugation of the pest. Moreover, the burning cf the stubble, in the opinion of some vh?at growers, robs the soil of import ant physical, if not manurial constitu ents, which should be incorporated by plowing under and not destroyed by burning Early plowing of the stubbie ground, as son tts possible after har vest, if the ground be compacted after ward by harrowing or robing, will serve the same end with less loss in this re spect. Considered in all relations, where one method alone is followed, it is best, in the writer's opinion, to depend upon late sowing. The adult insect flies and lays eggs accotding to season earlier or later in summer or fall, but cannot withstand the ftost; and wheat appear ing -after the first white frost of tno season will be free from attack. This fact is confirmed by the present year's experience of correspondents of the Kansas station. Early sown areas, on the other hand, will sometimes be found so badly infested, through the massing of the insects thereon, that the wintering of the plant will be a matter of doubt. If egg deposit be delayed by the ab sence of suitable plants, the flies will remain alive for some time in waiting, but if proper opportunity is provided the eggs are laid at once and the In sects then die. Small areas or strips through fields in infested localities may be seeded early, as trap crops, and after egg deposit these may be plowed under, destroying the contained eggs or larvae before the general seeding of the field. Against the spring brood, which weakens the stalk and lightens the grain, little can be done except by means to limit the winter brood of larvae. The thorough destruction of volunteer wheat, accompanied by late seeding, through their reduction of the numbers of insects wintering over, are the most practical means. Owing to the situation of the larvae down in the crown of the plant, there is little possibility of valuable results from pasturing the wheat during fall and winter. Where fields are pastured early, chance eggs may be destroyed before hatching, but the. advantage thus gained wiil be slight, if any. It is the combination of early sown trap strips with general late seedinj that is reco-nmended for practice by Kansas wheat growers. K. A. POPENOE. SCHOOL FOR MINISTERS. Pastcfra of Northwestern Kansas Meet at Salina. Salina, Aug. 23. The summer school of theology of the northwest Kansas conference of the Methodist cuhurch is in session here at the Kansas Wesleyan university. Over 40 students are in at tendance and the meetings are very in teresting. The summer school of theology here was the first one that was ever started, but the idea was found to be practical and of much benefit to young ministers, and now the Methodist church can boast of scores of similar schools in other conferences. It was organized eight years ago by Dr. L. C. Housel of Norton, Kan., who has ever since been the president of the school. Four class es ha.ve already graduated from the school and these graduates are making a splendid record wherever they are working. The corps of instructors is composed of some of the best and brainiest divines ia western Method ism. FIFTY BUSHELS PER ACRE. Lawrence Farmer Says That Will Be His Corn Yield. Lawrence, Aug. 23. Mr. Moses Sauer back. living near this city, yesterday exhibited stalks of corn from his field which would seem to substantiate his claim that his corn will make 50 bushel3 per acre.

The miners' conference, - which has been In session here for several days, reached a critical point Thiirsday, and indications are that a strilte i)l be declared among the miners of the Big Four companies or it will be a clear backdown by the United Mine Workers.

In Do the right thing at the right time. Act quickly in times of danger. Backache is kidney danger. Doan's Kidney Pills act quickly. Cure all distressing, dangerous kid ney ills. Plenty of evidence to prove this. Mrs. A. M. Roderick, No. 1012 Lime St., saysr "I have had kidney com plaint for five years, in fact, ever since I came to Topeka and attribute it to there being so much alkali in the wa ter. The pain in my back was some thing awful and I often thought it would break in two when I stooped. I could not lift anything and to run a sewing machine was out of the ques tion. At one time I suffered so acutely I thought I would sooner be dead than in such misery. The kidney secretions were of a dark and muddy color and their too frequent action disturbed my rest. I procured Doan's Kidney Pills at Rowley & Snow's drug store and their treatment gave me more relief and comfort than I had during five years. The pain in my loins and swell ing of my limbs passed away along with the other troubles." For sale by all dealers: price 50 cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo. N.

Sow Stanley Supervised Return of a Lost Boy Traveler. A Garnett man who was riding out of Kansas City on a Santa Fe train last Saturday morning en route to Topeka tells a story which illustrates the kind ness of Ciovernor Stanley, says a Kansas City paper. When Gov. Stanlev eot on the train he discovered a small boy occupying a seat alone, and Demg a Iriena or small ooys of any kind, the governor was soon on good terms with tne youngster ana n;ui him beside him in a. seat. The boy told Mr. Stanley where he was going and the governor made the discovery that the boy was on the wrong train. He hunted up the conductor and had the train stopped at a station in time to get the lad buck on another train to his destination with out serious loss of time. He tipped the porter of the returning train to insure his caring for the boy and cared for hitn as he would for one of his own children. That boy will always remember Governor Stanley's kindness, but he will probably never know that it was the governor of Kansas who showed him such kindness. At Wichita, where Mr. Stanley lives, every kid knows him and will yell at him across a street without ceremony, and the governor is never too busy to take notice of them. United Verd Again Running.
